Abstract

The invention provides a variable shape device, with or without a base, for presenting all types of bouquets individually, vertically and without water. The device (1) is made of water- and deformation-resistant materials, with an adjustable attachment means having a male (3) and a female portion (4). The assembled device has a tapered portion (5) with tabs (11), which adapts to every type of bouquet, and a stable base (2). The openings (6) enable the bouquet to be initially retained in the device, for individual presentation, by any fastening means inserted in the openings. A
water-tight decorated sheet (8), extending towards the top (5) of the outer walls (1) and adhering to members (7), is retained by a ribbon (21) on blade members which holds together the sheet, the device and the bouquet, the sheet providing water-tightness to the device (8). Water (10) introduced into the device collects at its base (2), thus providing stability to the bouquet and converting the device into a disposable flower-pot. In the same way, a cylindrical sleeve (20) provides for the transport, by air or by road, with very little water, of a bunch of 40 flowers from the producing country to a buyer country.

Description

BOUQUET PRESENTATION DEVICE
The invention relates to a device for individual presentation of bouquets of flowers, consisting of a quick to assemble, rigid technical part, for presentation of individual bouquets, acting as a simple support for bouquets of cut flowers and as support for bouquets of dried flowers in a florist's or self-service shop, and offering the possibility of transformation, by fitting of a watertight sheet, into a bouquet with a water reserve, guaranteeing perfect stability due to its conical shape and the addition of water. It thereby becomes a throwaway vase. Round or square collars can be fitted onto the device and transform it into a disposable flower-bowl.
The present invention relates to a device delivered flat which is fast to assemble, or already assembled in a volume able to be adapted to any bouquet of cut flowers as a support for storage or safes presentation, by its different. round, square, triangular or other shapes, with or without base.
More particularly, an object of the present invention is to provide a device for presentation of individual bouquets of flowers, comprising:
20 - a foldable support equipped with an adjustment system with male and female parts to transform the support into a conical volume having a top part and a bottom part, - a plurality of tongues arranged at the top part of the support and enabling a variable opening to suit the format of the bouquet, - a water-tight sheet placed under the bottom part of the support and folded up along a side wall of the support, - holding means for holding the sheet folded up along the side wall of the support thereby allowing water to be poured in via said variable opening situated near to the tongues at the top part of the support.

-1a-Preferably, the device further comprises a tie tied around the tongues to form a first fixing of the device enabling an individual and vertical presentation of the flowers.
Still preferably, the device comprises a ribbon placed in the top part of the support to hold the sheet against the tongues surrounding the opening.
This device folded with its bouquet, in all watertight sheets commonly used in the horticultural or florists' world, once in shape can contain a water reserve whose weight at its base ensures perfect stability with a water height for transport of 2cm.
The principle according to the invention enables a bouquet folded with the water reserve contained in its packa4ina to be transported from the place s of sale to its destination ensuring its conservation until it reaches the final customer, throughout the journey without wilting.
It is easy to compensate the evaporated water, without having to use a vase throughout its lifetime.
The florist can add professional preservatives, or simple colouring or to gelatinizing agents to improve the presentation.
It can be simply placed on a piece of furniture or on any flat surface.
This invention will enable the florist to be able to offer his customers a possibility of personal decoration and to increase his sales, by the is possibility of lighting and of colouring the water; which was not possible before. By printing on the sheet, the florist can match the latter to the colour of the bouquet and print his logo or name on it. The decorative effect can be improved by adding coloured sheets, placed under the cone, either flat or ruffled.
Once the flowers have withered, the final consumer throws the whole assembly away without having had to undo the packaging.
The present invention will be better understood by referring to the 2s following figures Figure 1 representing the device flat.

Figure 3 representing the device ready for use with its packaging sheet and its flowers.

Figure 12 representing the square device assembled with its sheet.
Figure 13 representing the triangular device flat with base.

Figure 15 representing the device acting as base able to be adapted to all models.
The support (1 ) is composed of rigid, water-resistant, translucent or 2o transparent sheets, of sufficient thickness to ensure that the water and bouquet are kept in a rigid volume.
The object of the invention is to achieve a technical part of different heights for any bouquet of any flowers, enabling the latter to be presented 2s individually, vertically, and without water.
Obtained by cutting, thermoforming or injection, the flat shape (1 ) before being shaped into a volume is transformed by the system of clipping (3) and adjustment (4),into a conical shape which is narrow at the top (5) 3o provided with tongues (11) pressing on the stalks of the flowers, and wide at the bottom (2) of different diameter and adapting to suit the bouquet.
The openings (6) enable a first fixing of the bouquet to the device before the sheet (8) is fitted by any tie (9) slid into said openings, and enable the bouquet to be secured for an individual, vertical presentation.

The same result as that of the above-mentioned tie (9) slid into openings can also be achieved by tightening the tongues (11 ).
The radius of definition of the support keeping the same principle enables cones of different shape and volume to be formed as indicated in figures 7 and 8.
The invention according to the principle of folding of the conventional bouquet, is formed by the device and a water-tight sheet (8) folded upwards and pre-fastened to the device by means of adhesive tabs (7) for ease of shaping of the sheet. The tongues (11 ) enable a second final attachment above the tie (9), by a decorative ribbon (21 ) holding the sheet (8) against the flexible tongues (11 ) which press on the stalks of the flowers.
At that moment, the bouquet is completely secured to the device.
Filling with water poured in through the opening (5) and collecting in the base (2) ensures preservation of the flowers.
The weight of the water (10) provides the stability of the assembly by ballasting and the device becomes a disposable vase.
For high arrangements with very few flowers, tabs (12) pierced with openings (13) can be fitted internally to hold the stalks of certain flowers.
Round (14) or square (15) collars can be fitted onto all the devices.
Devices according to the same principle can be designed, which are square (16), triangular (17), rectangular (18), with a base for certain tropical flowers.
A base (19) can be fitted onto most devices.
A cylindrical device according to the same principles (20), of different length, enables flowers to be transported from the producing countries to consumer countries guaranteeing their freshness with only very little water.
The device according to the invention enables bouquets to be made up inexpensively, without having recourse to conventional vases, enabling them to be given as gifts and kept.
